A Review Of Our Remedy's CBD Oil Specifically Made For Periods

-If a product is marked with a * then it was PR/Gifted to me. This post contains no sponsored content-
When I got the opportunity to try Our Remedy's 500mg CBD* which is a vegan and cruelty-free CBD oil specifically made for periods and all the lovely things that come along with having a period such as mood swings, bloating, increased anxiety etc, I just had to give it a try! Even though I very rarely get a period any more thanks to the pill I'm on, I still get what I call phantom periods occasionally when my mood is all over the place, my chin grows a couple of hormonal mountains (aka spots) and I feel really bloated and crampy. Adding to that I've also obviously got my chronic pelvic pain/suspected endometriosis which affects my day-to-day life too.

I really like that Our Remedy is led by females who all have bad periods or endometriosis (which obviously sucks!) but it's nice to know that it's run by people who truly understand what it's like to have bad periods or endo. They also support the charity Bloody Good Period (the leading Period Poverty charity) and for every full-price sale, they donate compostable sanitary products to them which I think is fab and it's nice to know that your purchase is helping someone.

The CBD oil itself is made with Grape Seed oil, broad-spectrum CBD oil, Peppermint and Clary Sage and is priced at £31.99 with a dropper or £26.99 for the more eco-friendly option which is ideal if you already have a bottle with a dropper. They also offer free worldwide delivery and your order should arrive within 1-2 business days. 

I've been testing this when my pelvic pain is flaring for a few weeks and I've also been going through a weird phantom period spell for about a week now and I keep getting occasional cramps which literally stop me in my tracks and I do think it's been helping to reduce the intensity of the cramps and bloating (I've also been drinking a lot of peppermint tea though so it could be that's also helping with the bloating!). The oil itself is mintier than I was expecting and it is strong, so if you're not a fan of mint then I don't think you'll like this if I'm being totally honest. However, if you're not a fan of the usual natural, bitter CBD taste you come across in a lot of CBD oils, then this might be a good oil to try if you're looking for a CBD to help you through that time of the month. 

Although it works, I wouldn't use Our Remedy's CBD Oil* for my everyday pelvic pain, just because the CBD I use for my usual pain is £29.99 for 30ml which obviously lasts longer and works out cheaper, but I do think I'll keep a bottle of this at hand for when I get phantom period pain or a real period because I do think the added ingredients help with a good variety of period-related issues from the bloating, pain, mood swings and anxiety and I like that they support a charity too. Obviously, I've not used this whilst having a proper period but I do have faith in it working for a normal period if it helps with my phantom periods and I've only been using half a pipette per day and have seen an improvement in the period-like pains and bloating I've been experiencing.

If you're interested in giving this a try yourself then you can pick it up from their website here. They also have lots of advice on the website about how CBD interacts with other medication, how it works for PMS, Endometriosis and anxiety as well as a blog.
